So yesterday I was going to post all these goals I'd like to achieve in the near future - Mind you I have so many that I need to achieve. And I was looking at other people's blogs and they wrote down all these goals they want to achieve...and I thought - it's too much and it sets me up for failure. Now this is just me, and I know I have a bunch of goals but if I threw them all into this one post and then didn't achieve just one of them, I'd feel like a failure. So I've made a plan for myself. I'm going to add another side bar and write one goal for the week. My goal, starting Monday 4/7/08- 4/13/08 is going to be to eat no carbs - by this I mean, no bread, no pasta, no rice, no potatoes, no corn. I will still be eating fruit and I know this counts as a carb too, but it's a different kind. I don't know if I'll be able to do this but I want to try. I'm also planning on setting a fitness goal to. Next weeks goal is going to be to go to the gym once. I have a free membership to the YMCA but for some reason, I don't want to go! I also have a huge desk calendar that we haven't been using so I'm going to go to the craft store today and use a gift card that I got for Christmas and buy a ton of stickers....I'm going to get one for drinking over 8 glasses of water a day, one for meeting my food goal for the week and one for me exercise goal for the week and maybe some cute stickers for the weight I lose...but I've been stuck for the last month, losing and gaining the same 5 pounds, and surprisingly I haven't given up yet, and what I'm doing feels comfortable. I also think that if I don't lose at least 15 pounds between now and June 1st, I'm going to try WW because maybe I need a change of scenery. So here's to one new goal a week and adding a new goal each week to build upon the last!! Anyone out there who wants to set a goal with me is more than welcome. When I started, I had an email buddy where we emailed what we ate each day and it helped keep me accountable - I'm up for more buddies too!
